Lyrics

A very old friend came by today 'Cause he was telling everyone in town About the love that he just found And Marie's the name of his latest flame

He talked and talked and I heard him say That she had the longest blackest hair The prettiest green eyes anywhere And Marie's the name of his latest flame

Though I smiled the tears inside were a burning I wished him luck and then he said goodbye He was gone but still his words kept returning What else was there for me to do but cry

Would you believe that yesterday This girl was in my arms and swore to me She'd be mine eternally And Marie's the name of his latest flame

Though I smiled the tears inside were a burning I wished him luck and then he said goodbye He was gone but still his words kept returning What else was there for me to do but cry

Would you believe that yesterday This girl was in my arms and swore to me She'd be mine eternally And Marie's the name of his latest flame

Yeah, Marie's the name of his latest flame Oh, Marie's the name of his latest flame
